With desserts on hand from MAC Center for the Arts members and corporate sponsors Keurig Green Mountain and Cabot Creamery, yuletide anxiety is sure to melt away. at MAC Center for the Arts in Newport. Northeast Kingdom (map). $10; preregister.

    Fri., Dec. 14, 8:30 p.m.

    Winter’s onset tends to make people go a little stir-crazy, especially when temperatures drop below freezing. What if there were a way not only to raise your body temperature but to give yourself a little boost of serotonin, as well? There is, and it’s called shaking your ass. And who better to give your rump a jump start than Brooklyn’s electro-funk outfit Exmag? Occasionally employing hip-hop MCs, the synth-heavy band sets dance floors ablaze. Catch Exmag on Friday, December 14, at Club Metronome in Burlington. Jaw Gems, Moon Daddies and local beatsmith Loupo add support. at Club Metronome in Burlington (map). $15.

    JanaeSound

    Sun., Dec. 16, 12 a.m.

    Up-and-coming Portland, Maine, rock artist JanaeSound is a fierce operator. Currently boasting only a pair of singles, the St. Louis-born singer-songwriter has ascendant vocals that seethe with face-melting power. Her two tracks show off her knack for contrast: indisputable banger “Break Me Down” employs visceral hard-rock riffs and emphatic theatricality; the slinky “Diamonds” is an ethereal, R&B slow burn full of fluttering harmonies. The chameleonic newcomer is likely to please fans of rip-roarin’ rockers such as Dorothy and ZZ Ward as much as lovers of Adele and Alicia Keys. Check out JanaeSound on Sunday, December 16, at Radio Bean in Burlington. at Radio Bean in Burlington (map). free.

    Parsonsfield

    Sun., Dec. 16, 7:30 p.m.

    Parsonsfield are a five-piece group from western Massachusetts known for a punchy blend of traditional Americana and modern folk-rock. As the holiday season approaches, the group ditches amplifiers for its annual acoustic holiday tour. The bandmates add a little twang to popular holiday tunes such as “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” and “Wonderful Christmastime” and reinvent selections from their own catalog with holiday flair. Based on the heaping bounty of instruments used — mandolin, harmonium, glockenspiel and musical saw, to name a few — it seems Santa put the band on his “nice” list. Get in the holiday spirit with Parsonsfield on Sunday, December 16, at the Engine Room in White River Junction. at The Engine Room in White River Junction. Upper Valley (map). $15.

    If you’ve always dreamed of spending the holidays in Italy, The Christmas Revels will get you pretty close.

Produced by community arts nonprofit Revels North, this spirited spectacular of song, dance and storytelling celebrates a particular culture each year by exploring its winter solstice and holiday traditions. In this year’s Venetian-themed production, a 60-member multigenerational cast tells the story of an overworked municipal administrator who just may rediscover his city’s magical qualities. at Spaulding Auditorium, Hopkins Center for the Arts, Dartmouth College in Hanover.

    '7Women, 7Walls'

    Tools

    Through Dec. 28

    In her artist’s statement for this group exhibition at the Vermont Arts Council’s Spotlight Gallery, Hannah Morris says she wants to “trigger your memory,” suggesting that “vision is shaped by thousands of remembered moments.” That’s one approach to a show defined by the artists’ personal responses to life and the natural, spiritual and digital worlds. Their mediums, however, differ radically, ranging from fiber to frottage, painting to collage. The seven women work at the broad front lines of Vermont contemporary art. In addition to Morris they include Mary Admasian, Alisa Dworsky, Karen Henderson, Evie Lovett, Janet Van Fleet and Kristen M. Watson. at Spotlight Gallery in Montpelier. Barre/Montpelier (map).
